When the girls first went to the Indian
country, many took with them the elab

such a dejight to the feminine heart and
had turned the Jieads of young men before
the exodus.

gown or a picture hat when one seldom sees
any one else at least, no one except the
farm hands oftener than onoe a week, and
where the prevailing style In feminine at
tire is a short skirt, a shirtwaist and a
rough slouch hat?
To be sure, the men who' gathered at
the few functions In Philips or vicinity are
greatly attracted by a gown with a train.
But as a "hickory" shirt, corduroy trousers,
a red handkerchief around the throat and
a broad sombrero topping all is the fashion

came a guide shortly after s'.e reached
Bonesteel and conducted prospecting parties
over the country that a few years ago was
red with blood shed In battle with warring
Indian tribes.
When she was allotted a claim and
reached the Roaebud country, she found
thai her farm was back In the foothills,
forty miles from the nearest railroad sta
tion. .'
She went out and looked It over, however,
and was pleased with the prospect. Hiring
two men te build her a "shack," she
mounted a horse and rode back' to Philips
to await the1 completion of her new dwel
ling. One day at the postofflce In Philips she
encountered a young man. Just In from the

came up, and the home-hunters were
forced to halt.
Early the next morning the journey was
resumed. The first stream to which they
came was out of its banks, while the
bridge had been washed away. The only
thing left was to ford it.
In this attempt the provision wag-on,

took command.

The novelty of this vocation appealed to
Miss Watrous and she has become a reg

Miss Watrous, too, has had many oppor
tunities to marry, but has declined them

would demand that she look with favor
upon the suit of the young man whom
she met at the Phillips postofflce and,

the case just now.
One of the social leaders on ths plains,

Rood, wife of a prominent physician. She
is living temporarily In a 10x11 shanty on
her claim, while her husband Is construct
ing a handsome $30,000 residence on Grand
avenue, the fashionable residence street of
Des Moines. ,
Mrs. Rood sprung a decided Innovation
on her neighbors when she sped out to her
claim in an automobile. She passed
through the Indian settlements, where she
created a furor among the red men, who
had never seen an auto car before. She
la said to have reached the farthest point
In that country yet visited by automobile.

Miss Julia Cutler was one of the best

and adviser to the court of love organised

A golden-haired daughter of Mrs. Brown
waa a conspicuous member of the com
bination. She did not make love to any
of the men, nor, receive their attentiona,
but it was handy to have her around as
Milady's maid. The same Interesting role
waa assumed by Mrs. Brown's beautiful
niece. Miss Mary Mason, daughter of a
struggling Boston storekeeper. Mrs.
Brown's scheme to marry the girl to a
New Yorker ot wealth was given a rude
shock when the girl eloped with a man she
really loved.
The youths who helped along the trick
were scarcely out of their teens. Robert
Emmet Keene, who for some time plsyed
small parts In Proctor's Btock company,
was the oldest of the group. In his posi
tion as butler many a generous tip came

amateur sculptor, became associated with
the matrimonial tricksters through his ac

game of love, for the women were devotedly
admired, not merely by one or two. but
by many, and In the hearts of several of
the callers jealousy raged. Often Intensely
bitter quarrels arose at cards, at the table,

The Upper Mississippi River Improve
ment association holds Its fourth annual
convention in Minneapolis this coming
October. This will join with the Ohio river
Improvement association and representa
tives of the lower Mississippi states in
holding a great valley river Improvement
convention In St. Louis this coming Novem
ber. This convention will debate the pos
sibilities of, and make recommendations
for, the development of a heavy freight
channel from the -Twin Cities to New Or
leans and from Great Falls, Mont., on the
upper Missouri, to Pittsburg on the Ohio.
The value to the. whole nation of these Im
proved waterways, taken In conjunction
with the Improvements now being made
on the Illinois river and the Chicago canal,
opening a ship passage from the great lakes
to the gulf, can not be overestimated. If
Mr. Carnegie Is right In his claim that
our Internal waterways already offered the
cheapest transportation In the world, these
free arteries of commerce will at once con
trol the trafllo rates of the twenty-two
states that they drain. These states al
ready produce the bulk of our agricultural
wealth; they already support more than
twice as many manufacturing plants as the
other outlying states, and the value ot their
finished products Is estlmted at over ten
billion of dollars a year.
As the market value of any finished pro
duct Is estimated upon the producer's price,
plus the cost of .transportation, .the open
ing of these great waterways to freight
traffic will benefit both the producer
through a larger demand for his goods,
and the consumer through a lessened cost
for the same.
President Roosevelt has said that the
highways of commerce should be open to all
on equal terms a condition which Is not
likely to obtain, even through the enforce
ment of recent 1 legislation that has been
directed to that end. When the railroads
are brought directly into competition with
Independent carriers on a common highway,
they will confront a controlling Influence
far more effective than any rate bill can
ever hope to be. The policy of charging
all the traffic will bear la an obstacle to
Industrial expannlon. A low cost of con
veyance is a necessity to all the cruder
products. Moreover, the productive ca
pacity of our great Interior Is developing
fester than our facilities of transportation.
There Is an ever Increasing flood of pro
ducts, crude and manufactured, from farm,
mine, forest and factory sources which
overtax our channels of commerce, efficient
and magnificent as our railroads havo come
to be.
During the last four years engineers have
been busily engaged- measuring widths,
depths, charting, changing channels, cal
culating the reebitlnaT force of shale-rocked
and soft-loam banks along the upper Mis
sissippi, and they have found that the ju
dicious expenditure of the cost of but three
battleships will wtngdam a 'channel ade
quate to accommodate heavy freighting
from St. Paul to New Orleans. The very
dsma that make this unlocked channel pos
sible arrest sufficient water to give a mill
ing power to a hundred manufacturing
cities each of upward of a hundred thou
sand people along the way.
